Civil Engineering

 Civil Engineering is the oldest branch in the field of engineering. Civil Engineering is a profession in which a knowledge of mathematical and physical sciences gain by study, experience and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to utilize economically the materials and forces of nature for the development of civilization. Civil Engineers convert complex ideas into realities. They help in making innovative structures in the world.ŁCiviliansŁ are in fact the true nation builders considered a pioneering branch of engineering, Civil Engineering is the art and science of designing the infrastructure for a society. Civil Engineers are involved in every aspect of community infrastructure, housing and constructions.
Civil Engineers are involved in three areas of activity, namely, Designing, Construction and Maintenance. They contribute to design and construction of bridges, tunnels, roads, railways, airways, dams, pipelines and major buildings. In addition, Civil Engineers safeguard the environment against pollution of air, land and water, by implementing proper treatment techniques and managing the natural resources for future generation. If you are fascinated by the great structures and amazed by the way they are built, then a degree in Civil Engineering is a must for you. A Civil Engineering student at GIET is trained with the skill of building the world with proper attitude, love and enthusiasm and provided with a life style in harmony with environment.
Civil Engineers play a very important role in improving the living standards of a society in the form of structural engineers, transportation engineers, water resource and environmental engineers, hydrologists, geologists and geotechnical experts.

HOD'S MESSAGE
Prof. Binay Kumar Panigrahi
I take the privilege to welcome you all to the Department of Civil Engineering at Gandhi Institute for Education and Technology, Bhubaneswar.
A Civil Engineer is responsible for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required scale, and maintenance of the product. A Civil Engineer requires not only a high standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative skills. 
The planning part of their work involves site investigation, feasibility studies, creating solutions to complications that may occur and the actual designing of structures. Civil Engineering involves planning, designing and executing structural works.
The profession deals with a wide variety of engineering tasks including designing, supervision and construction activities of public works like roads, bridges, tunnels, buildings, airports, dams, water works, sewage systems, ports etc. and offers a multitude of challenging career opportunities. Our Civil Engineering department is vibrant, due to our dynamic academic and technical staff members, as well as our bright students. 
So Come and join with us and build the Nation!
